Weather ~ Picture of the Day ~ Vaccines and Pasteurization ~ Pizza-Worthy Stromboli ~ Ron and Monika Wisberger ~ National Tattoo Day


Good 53º clear sunny morning. 

I just saw a coyote chasing some wild turkeys across my pasture!! Dude started barking at him and he stopped and stared for a second and then continued chasing the turkeys. 
Yesterday we topped at 95º.
Picture of the Day .... best friends holding tails!

Interesting about vaccines and pasteurization ....

Louis Pasteur ( 27 December 1822 – 28 September 1895) was a French chemist and microbiologist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccinationmicrobial fermentation, and pasteurization. His research in chemistry led to remarkable breakthroughs in the understanding of the causes and preventions of diseases, which laid down the foundations of hygiene, public health and much of modern medicine. His works are credited to saving millions of lives through the developments of vaccines for rabies and anthrax. He is regarded as one of the founders of modern bacteriology and has been honored as the "father of bacteriology" and as the "father of microbiology".
Pasteur is also regarded as one of the fathers of germ theory of diseases, which was a minor medical concept at the time. His many experiments showed that diseases could be prevented by killing or stopping germs, thereby directly supporting the germ theory and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. Pasteur also made significant discoveries in chemistry, most notably on the molecular basis for the asymmetry of certain crystals and racemization. Early in his career, his investigation of tartaric acid resulted in the first resolution of what is now called optical isomers. His work led the way to the current understanding of a fundamental principle in the structure of organic compounds.

Louis Pasteur was born on December 27, 1822, in Dole, JuraFrance, to a Catholic family of a poor tanner. He was the third child of Jean-Joseph Pasteur and Jeanne-Etiennette Roqui. The family moved to Marnoz in 1826 and then to Arbois in 1827. Pasteur entered primary school in 1831.

He was an average student in his early years, and not particularly academic, as his interests were fishing and sketching. He drew many pastels and portraits of his parents, friends and neighbors. Pasteur attended secondary school at the Collège d'Arbois.

Pasteur was appointed professor of chemistry at the University of Strasbourg in 1848, and became the chair of chemistry in 1852.




From Mr. Food


You don't need to leave your kitchen to make a pizzeria-worthy stromboli. These "bake" perfectly in your air fryer! You see, the air fryer allows hot air to circulate all around the stromboli, which results in a crunchy-on-the-outside, yet tender-on-the-inside crust. Plus, there's all the molten meat and cheese filling too. In the end, you get to enjoy a really delicious, authentic-tasting stromboli!


  • 1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated thin crust pizza dough
  • 16 slices thinly sliced deli salami
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup sliced roasted red peppers
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 1/4 cup Italian dressing, divided
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, divided
  • Parmesan cheese for sprinkling


  1. Preheat air fryer to 350º. Unroll pizza dough on a cutting board and cut into 4 equal-sized rectangles.
  2. Layer each piece of dough evenly with salami, spinach, red peppers, provolone cheese, and 1 tablespoon Italian dressing. Starting at the long edge of dough, roll up jelly roll-style. Spray top of each with cooking spray, then evenly sprinkle with Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
  3. Coat air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place 2 stromboli in basket and air-fry for 9 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining stromboli. After the second 2 are done, place first 2 back in for 1 minute to warm up.

National Tattoo Day on July 17th recognizes the history, culture, and artists dedicated to etching ink permanently on the skin. The day might just be the date to get that ink you’ve been contemplating.

Evidence of humans marking their bodies with permanent designs have existed for thousands of years. Egyptian and ice mummies reveal several forms of religious and status symbols.

The word “tattoo” is derived from the Polynesian language for tatau, which means “to tap or to mark.” Around the world, cultures surrounding tattooing vary, and some have changed very little over time. In the United States, sailors brought tattooing to coastal shores from their island exploits.

Getting inked continues to grow as technology and acceptance increase. While age, gender, religion, and class once divide the tattooed from the non-tattooed, those barriers are less common than they used to be. The reasons why we go under the needle differ, too. A tattoo may represent a significant event or hold intensely personal meaning. However, some people do get tattoos on a whim. Still, others confess, the need for a new tattoo is an addiction.

As the art form increases in popularity, considering a few things before getting a tattoo is essential:

Getting a Tattoo
  • Research and find a reputable artist. Remember, this art is permanent. You will want a polished finished piece with no regerts – that is, no regrets.
  • Once you’ve found an artist, be sure you have a design in mind. If you aren’t an artist, pulling an idea from your head and making it a reality will take time to develop.
  • Check spelling. Fact check. If you use a foreign word or a quote in your design, research the meaning and check the spelling. The same applies to symbols. Just because a website translated a meaning or said symbol represented peace or love in a specific culture, doesn’t mean it’s true. And it’s not the artist’s responsibility to know either. Sometimes the design means something altogether different to the client.
  • Be prepared to be placed on a waiting list. Good artists are in demand.
  • You will pay more for good art. Nobody wants a lousy tattoo.
Day of Your Appointment
  • Clear your day, especially if you’re getting a large tattoo.
  • Arrive on time. Most artists charge by the hour, and any adjustment throws their entire day off. You can’t rush good art.
  • Dress comfortably. You will be sitting or lying in a fixed position for long periods of time.
  • Eat something. A protein bar won’t make you feel stuffed but will keep you alert and satisfied throughout the session.
  • Bring water and stay hydrated.
  • Tip your artists when the session is over.



National Tattoo Day has been observed since 2016. However, National Day Calendar continues researching the origins of the day.
